We transfer film to digital – converting 8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm film using various equipment for telecine, film transfer in our Orange County California facility. Film is illuminated by LED (cool light) and image is captured by 3CCD camera, or single large chip 2K high definition camera. Process produces uniform lighting, unmatched clarity, and stunning color depth. Our film conversion process produces extremely high quality, flicker free video, with or without sound. Your film is converted to digital video in the form of uncompressed video files. These digital files are then color corrected, enhanced and can be supplied to you in compressed DVD-MPEG-2, MP4, H.264 or uncompressed AVI file.
Each film reel is inspected, repaired and cleaned prior to transfer. We use EDVAL film cleaner and proffesional film guilotine splicers. We do not alter the film and we will return film to you, on the same reels you gave us.
We transfer both optically and magnetically recorded film audio. We optimize the sound quality by controlling the gain and applying DOLBY noise reduction to reduce the noise. Mono audio is duplicated to left and right audio channel. Audio is fully synchronized with video.
After your film is digitized we edit out leaders and blank spots and perform a detailed quality check. Color correction, contrast and hue are checked and corrected, before the video is compressed to DVD standard. We use industrial grade professional equipment to compress video with variable bit rate and create DVD Video Disk. Each DVD Video disk has main menu, and chapter points every 5 min, to allow easy navigation and control. We then burn to high quality DVD-R in Orange County, CA. discs that are compatible with almost all DVD players.
